Our Suffering With Chronic Lyme Disease – Will I Kill Myself?

Our Suffering With Chronic Lyme Disease - Will I Kill Myself?

When you suffer for days, weeks, months or even years…with pain that will not stop – or with fatigue that is so profound, you feel like a corpse (not a walking corpse because you are so weak you can barely struggle to the bathroom – no, it is a prone corpse).

You think about suicide. Let’s face it, we all have thought about it when the pain and suffering overwhelms us, and we feel there is no one who cares or understands.  Friends try to relate Continue reading

Biological Attack — Are We Ready?

Imagine the nightmare scenario of an attack from a terrorist group or hostile nation. It probably involves a radioactive blast and a mushroom cloud, right? What about an attack that involves germs and surgical masks? How does that factor in? The reality is biological attacks may be just as devastating as the typical terrorist attack. How prepared is the U.S., and what’s the history of biological warfare and terrorism throughout the world?

Where We Stand

The news isn’t good — the U.S. is scarcely prepared for a large-scale infection of the population, whether man-made or naturally occurring. And this is despite spending billions to improve response efforts.
How prepared is the U.S. for a large-scale contagious disease outbreak?
Area Grade
Detection and diagnosis D
Attribution F
Communication C
Medical countermeasure availability D (B for smallpox)
Medical countermeasure development and approval D
Medical countermeasure dispensing D
Medical management D
How much does the federal government spend on preparedness?
$5.5 billion
Annual federal spending on biodefense programs
That’s more than the National Institutes of Health spends on HIV/AIDS, immunization, mental health and women’s health.
Biodefense $5.5 billion
HIV/AIDS $3.1 billion
Immunization $1.7 billion
Mental health $2.3 billion
Women’s health $3.9 billion
$1 billion
Total spent since 2003 on federal BioWatch program, which aims to detect the release of airborne pathogens as a result of a terrorist attack
BioWatch operates in about 30 cities across the country, reportedly including Philadelphia, New York, Washington, San Diego, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, St. Louis, Houston and Los Angeles, though the cities where it operates have never been officially released, and criticisms about the program remain.
149
Positive results for dangerous pathogens reported since the start of the BioWatch program
0
Actual pathogens detected; all results were false alarms

What They’re Looking For

The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention list more than 40 pathogens as potential bioterrorism agents; here are a few of the most dangerous:
Anthrax
Spores are found readily in nature, can be produced in a lab and can last for a long time in the environment. Contact with anthrax can cause severe illness in both humans and animals, though it is not contagious.
10%-15%
Survival rate from inhalation anthrax without treatment
55%
Survival rate after aggressive treatment
Symptoms of inhalation anthrax

  • Fever and chills
  • Chest discomfort
  • Shortness of breath
  • Confusion or dizziness
  • Cough
  • Nausea, vomiting or stomach pains
  • Headache
  • Sweats (often drenching)
  • Extreme tiredness
  • Body aches

Botulism
A muscle-paralyzing disease caused by a toxin made by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. Foodborne botulism is the most common cause of infection.
6 hours
Most rapid appearance of symptoms
Symptoms of foodborne botulism

  • Double vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Slurred speech
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dry mouth
  • Muscle weakness

Brucellosis
It’s most frequently transmitted to humans through dairy products, but those who spend time around infected animals are also susceptible, such as hunters, veterinarians and meatpacking workers.
Death from infection is rare (only 2% of cases), but recovery can take several months.
Symptoms of infection

  • Fever
  • Sweats
  • Malaise
  • Anorexia
  • Headache
  • Pain in muscles, joints or back
  • Fatigue

Plague
Plague is caused by Yersinia pestis, a bacterium found in rodents and their fleas in many areas around the world. Yersinia pestis used in an aerosol attack could cause cases of pneumonic plague.
Without early treatment, pneumonic plague usually leads to respiratory failure, shock and rapid death.
Symptoms

  • Fever
  • Weakness
  • Rapidly developing pneumonia
  • Bloody or watery sputum
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain

Smallpox
Smallpox is a serious, contagious and sometimes fatal infectious disease. There is no specific treatment for smallpox disease, and the only prevention is vaccination.
1949
Last reported case of smallpox in the U.S.
1977
Last naturally occurring case in the world, reported in Somalia
Symptoms

  • Fever
  • Malaise
  • Head and body aches
  • Vomiting
  • Rash that develops into raised bumps

Tularemia
Tularemia is a potentially serious illness that occurs naturally in the United States. It is caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis, which is found in animals (especially rodents and rabbits). Tularemia is not known to be spread from person to person. The disease can be fatal if it is not treated with the right antibiotics.
Symptoms

  • Sudden fever
  • Chills
  • Headaches
  • Diarrhea
  • Muscle aches
  • Joint pain
  • Dry cough
  • Progressive weakness

A Brief History

The world is no stranger to people using diseases as weapons.
1000 BC
Arsenic smoke is used by the Chinese.
184 BC
In a sea battle, Hannibal of Carthage hurls clay pots full of vipers onto the decks of enemy ships.
1100s
Bodies of plague or smallpox victims are hurled over city walls.
1495
The Spanish offer wine spiked with the blood of leprosy patients to the French .
1650
Polish artillery general Siemenowics fires spheres filled with the saliva of rabid dogs at his enemies.
1763
British officers come up with a plan to distribute smallpox-infected blankets to Native Americans at Fort Pitt, Pennsylvania.
1914
German artillery soldiers fire 3,000 shells filled with dianisidine chlorosulfate, a lung irritant, at British troops. The shells contained too much TNT, which destroy the chemical.
1915
Allied troops make their own chlorine gas attacks; Germany comes up with diphosgene gas; the French try cyanide gas.
1917
Germany introduces mustard gas, which burns the skin and lungs.
1936
German chemist Gerhart Schrader comes up with nerve agent tabun (later called German agent A or GA). Two years later, he develops sarin.
1950s
British and U.S. researchers develop VX, a nerve gas so toxic that a single drop on the skin can kill in 15 minutes.
1959
Researchers at Fort Detrick, Maryland breed yellow-fever-infected mosquitoes.
1967
The International Red Cross says mustard gas and possibly nerve agents were used by the Egyptians against civilians in the Yemen civil war.
1969
23 U.S. servicemen and one U.S. civilian are exposed to sarin in Okinawa, Japan, while cleaning bombs filled with the deadly nerve agent.
1972
The U.S. and Russia sign a treaty banning the use of biological weapons, and the U.S. claims by the following year to have destroyed its weapons.
1979
A Soviet bioweapons facility releases a plume of anthrax, killing at least 64 people. Thousands could have died if the wind was blowing the other way. Despite the treaty banning biological weapons, the Soviet program had been going full speed.
1980
Iraq attacks Iran and soon unleashes a mustard agent and the nerve agent tabun, delivered in bombs dropped by airplanes.
1984
Followers of a cult member running for a county judgeship in a local election sprinkle homegrown salmonella bacteria on supermarket produce, door handles and restaurant salad bars in Oregon. Nobody dies, but 751 people become ill.
1994
Residents of Matsumoto, Japan, develop symptoms of illness due to nerve gas. Seven die and 500 are sickened. A second attack in 1995 strikes a Tokyo subway, killing 12 and infecting thousands.
2001
A newspaper editor in Florida dies of anthrax traced to a letter. Anthrax-laden letters also turn up at the offices of ABC, CBS, and NBC in New York. Anthrax is also found in the New York office of Gov. George Pataki. Letters containing anthrax also arrive at the U.S. Senate mailroom.

ONE RESPONSE TO BIOLOGICAL ATTACK — ARE WE READY?

  1. Aug. 2013, the regime of Bashar al-Assad uses Sarin nerve gas on neighborhoods in the Ghouta region, Damascus, Syria, during a Syrian Arab Army offensive to capture rebel-held areas. More than 1,000 people, perhaps as many as 2,000, mostly civilians, were killed when rockets filled with tons of Sarin gas were fired from Syrian Arab Army (regime loyalist) strongholds in the capital city. UN investigations concluded that the chemicals came from Syrian Arab Army stockpiles.

New Book by Dr. Horowitz a Big Success

New Book by Dr. Horowitz a Big Success

If you haven’t read it yet, please order a copy of “Why Can’t I Get Better? Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Disease.” by Dr. Richard Horowitz.

Although you may be disappointed if you think it will give you a treatment solution for your particular disease cocktail, the book is jammed full arguably one of the most experienced (if not the most experienced) Lyme-literate MD in the US today.

My disappointment runs deeper, as it has with many of the top LLMD’s, best selling authors, and lecturers who have gained their fame and status as experts re: chronic Lyme (more accurately chronic Borrelia) Continue reading

Parasite Infestations Can Mimic Symptoms of Chronic Lyme Disease

Parasite Infestations Can Mimic Symptoms of Chronic Lyme Disease

Chronic Lyme disease is the “Great Imitator”, as most of us know (especially for the poor souls who have been misdiagnosed and treated with the wrong medicine (such as steroids for joint pain – the worst treatment possible for Lyme!)

When I think of the quantities of sushi I have eaten over the years, and the time spent in barns and riding horse (where you are exposed to the very worms that we treat horses routinely for) I can see where I could easily have a wide range of parasites – many benign, but they still offer a hide-out for Borrelia to avoid any killing protocol we try.

How to Keep Good Bacteria While on Antibiotics Naturally

How to Keep Good Bacteria While on Antibiotics Naturally

If you’ve done any reading on the human digestive system, you’re familiar with the term “normal flora.” These are the good bacteria that help us break down and digest our food. In fact, the human body typically has about ten times more bacterial cells than it does human body cells, and the majority of those are in our gut. So being on antibiotics for an extended period of time, which Lyme’s sufferers often do, can destroy that normal flora and cause digestive problems. Here are some foods you can eat to restore that normal flora and protect your digestive system while you stay on your course of antibiotics.

Yogurt and other Probiotics

You’ve seen the commercials for the yogurts that help re-establish healthy bacteria into your gut. But yogurt isn’t the only source of probiotics. You can also find them in tempeh and delicious Japanese miso.. These substances help to regrow healthy gut bacteria by serving as a live combatant against unhealthy bacteria, competing for food sources, and digesting unhealthy bacteria directly.

Kombucha

Fermented proteins and grains are an excellent source of gut-friendly bacteria, and this tea has become so popular it’s no longer hard to find. Any health food store will have kombucha tea in stock, and while the taste takes some getting used to, it’s very good for your digestive system. Many doctors suggest drinking kombucha concurrent to or after an antibiotics cycle to help restore the healthy gut bacteria.

Bananas and other Prebiotics

Bananas are often hailed as an easily-digested fruit. Excellent as an energy source for runners, who tend to have constant digestive problems, these fruits are also good sources of prebiotics, which are indigestible carbohydrates that provide inulin, lactitol, and other flora-friendly nutrients that help you regrow gut bacteria. Other sources of prebiotics include artichokes and garlic.

Whole Grains

While fiber is often pointed to as a problem for those with intestinal problems, it is also a prebiotic. Be careful to check the label of your grain before buying; it should say “whole grain,” not “whole wheat,” which may be more processed. These sources keep things moving within your digestive tract without losing too much normal flora, and also provide the same substances as bananas and other prebiotics.

Honey

This sweet substance can replace sugar as a sweetener, especially since sugar is one of the causes of loss of gut flora. Using honey as a natural sweetener adds another layer of flavor to your food, but it also helps restore natural flora as a source of prebiotics. Add some to your probiotic yogurt and double your protection in addition to enjoying a healthy, delicious snack.

Kefir

Kefir is what’s known as a synbiotic, which contains both of the above substances. These substances, pre- and probiotics, work in tandem to create the optimal balance of normal flora in your digestive tract. Many companies attempt to add synbiotics to their packaged food, but the best sources are always natural.

Homemade Broths

These meat broths, especially those using bone, are high in the normal flora stored in bone marrow of the animal used. By creating your own meat or bone broth, you retain the helpful bacteria that taking antibiotics can destroy. And since broth is cooked slowly at a low temperature, it doesn’t cook out or kill off the pre- and pro-biotic properties of the bone marrow.

While all of the above foods are healthy and delicious additions to a healthy, balanced diet, they’re especially helpful to those people who are on antibiotics, whether it’s a long-term dependency or simply a single cycle. Natural remedies can be used in tandem with antibiotic cycles to help the body respond better to treatment and reduce the harm and side effects caused by antibiotics. Adding these items to your diet will help you reduce disease and discomfort by creating a balanced, healthy environment in your digestive tract.
